Take another look at the Developer courseware that you got in class. Check out
Labs 2 & 3 of the Custom WebParts Techniques chapter. That has the answers to
all your questions. Other short responses in order listed below.

1. You can't really build a web  part in anything but Visual Studio. What
we recommended in class was not to use the Visual Studio extensions for WSS, but
to build your webpart  using the built-in Class Library template  as a starting
point. Both approaches us Visual Studio.

2. The VSeWSS web part  template is added when you install VSeWSS onto your
development machine. Note: VSeWSS can only be installed on Server 2003 unless
you hack the installation program.

3. There are some walkthrough's available on MSDN, but I would start by
going back through Lab 3 in the courseware. It has all the steps necessary.
